Aquafeed Additives Market Analysis

The Aquafeed Additives Market size is estimated at USD 2.56 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 3.74 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 7.90% during the forecast period (2024-2029).

Aquafeed additives are rich sources of proteins and omega 3 fatty acids. These additives are added to aquafeed to enhance the feed quality and prevent infections in fish caused by parasites. Controlling parasites during fish farming is highly important as it can lead to economic losses. These additives provide benefits such as healthy growth, improved immunity system, enhance feed conversion, and reduce the mortality rate of aquafeed. Thus increasing awareness among the manufacturers regarding the additives will boost up the market. For instance, Aquafeed additives such as palatants and feed acidifiers, in several cultivar species such as carp, tilapia, salmon and catfish, especially in emerging economies, are witnessing huge demand. This will add a complementary growth during the forecast period.
